FORTHCOMING EVENTS

Bee Orchid Hunt - Saturday 27th January, 11am


All welcome to come along to survey the Lawn and count the overwintering rosettes of the Bee Orchids.    The 'hunt' will be led by Ashley Arbon who will provide more detailed information about their anatomy and life cycle.  If you would like to take an active part in the survey, please meet at the Lawn car park just before 11am.  Full guidance/instructions will be given on the day so you do not need to have any prior knowledge of this attractive orchid, one of over 127 plant species growing in this area. We look forward to seeing you on the day!


Newcomers Tractor Trail village tour - date to be announced


Calling all those who have moved to the village over recent years!  All newcomers to the village are invited to the Newcomers Tea Party held in the Memorial Hall on Sunday 4th February at 4pm to find out all about the different groups operating within the village. Please come along, as among other things, you will have the opportunity to sign up to the Whittlesford Society's Tractor Trailer village tour.  These tours are always thoroughly enjoyable and take in historical houses of interest together with areas of archaeological and ecological interest. It is a super way to learn more about the village from residents with lots of interesting knowledge about the village you live in.  If you have been in the village for a few years, but have not had the opportunity to attend one of these events you are most welcome to come along - please drop Annie an e.mail to annieappleyard11@gmail.com (for catering purposes).  If you are unable to attend the tea party, but are interested in signing up to the Tractor Trailer tour please phone Debbie Bright on 832453, e.mail whitsocinfo@tesco.net.

World War 1 Project - The Whittlesford 100

 
We are currently undertaking a project to research the 100 village men who left to fight in the First World War. We want to find out who they were, what happened to them and their families before, during and after the war. What was the impact of the war on the village?
 
There is a list of the 100 men on the 'Documents and Publications Library' section of the website which you can view and download. Alternatively, if you would like to receive an e-mailed copy of the list please phone 833386 or contact the Publications Editor using the e-mail address on the 'Contact Us' page. 

We are now moving the project forward by trying to get information on the outstanding/missing names so if you have any information which might help or you want to be involved, please phone 833386 for more information         


                                                    
Watch this space for further information or call 833386
